Join Jim and Greg as they welcome House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul’s vow to get answers on the Biden administration’s debacle in Afghanistan. McCaul says the administration has been stonewalling on providing documents on how U.S. intelligence was so wrong on the advance of the Taliban, the deadly attack on U.S. service members outside the Kabul airport, and much more. They also shudder as a new report shows the U.S. is dangerously deficient in producing new weapons to replace the many munitions we’re sending over to Ukraine. In other words, if the U.S. got involved in sustained military action, we could run out of key weapons in less than a week. Finally, they shake their heads as Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s solution to the wave of street vendor robberies is to tell them not to conduct business in cash.
Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the impending resignation of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, whose years in power were most notably marked by draconian COVID policies and unilaterally outlawing the right to own many different weapons. They also shake their heads as some House Republicans propose a national 30 percent sales tax to replace all other federal taxes. They appreciate the effort to simplify the code and hope discussions continue but fear this plan will only be used by Democrats to hammer Republicans. Finally, they respond to former Vice President Al Gore bellowing about boiling oceans and a billion climate refugees.
Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the impact of Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema leaving the Democratic Party and becoming an independent – both on the functioning of the Senate and the 2024 Senate race in Arizona. They also break down the reporting of Bari Weiss on how Twitter really was shadow banning – or “visibility filtering” – certain accounts on the right. And they discuss the bizarre case of the Biden administration’s non-binary nuclear waste expert being charged with another felony after a second case of stealing someone else’s luggage at the airport.
Join Jim and Greg as they react to the news that former FBI General Counsel Jim Baker was trying to prevent reporters Matt Taibbi and Bari Weiss from seeing certain documents related to Twitter’s spiking of the Hunter Biden laptop story in 2020. They also dissect Sen. Warnock’s win over Herschel Walker in the Georgia Senate runoff and lament that there seem to be no consequences for any major GOP figure for terrible midterm results. And they fume as Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon informs his prosecutors to lessen charges against criminals to prevent suspects from facing deportation.
